While being very approachable the influence of the rum cask and higher percentage alcohol creates a unique smooth, sweet, slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue.
A sweet spice finish complimented by woody undertones.

Teeling Small Batch challenges the convention of what an Irish blend should be. The flagship of our Trinity Range, Teeling Small Batch consists of hand selected casks of grain and malt whiskey, initially aged in ex-bourbon casks for up to 6 years, and then married together for more than 6 months in ex-rum cask from Central America, imparting a unique dried fruit profile. Like all of our Trinity Range, this whiskey is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration, completing an Irish Whiskey of true character.
The corn/grain element of the blend brings a distinct sweetness, acting as a canvas for the rich, roasted caramel/toffee character of the malted barley.
The grain and malt whiskeys are aged separetely in ex-bourbon barrels, in a ration of roughly 3:1, grain to malt. Vanilla and oak notes are imparted at this stage.
Blending in small batches and finishing in Central American rum casks allow the grain and malt whiskey to marry and take on a subtle dried fruit character.
